The topic is "Moral Predicament." The situation isn't interesting or worthy of consideration as a "predicament" if there are other choices available. There's no point in trying to "weasel" your way out of the predicament part of this, that's avoiding the topic altogether and doesn't belong in this thread. (Goes for lanthanides 1 cent thing too, and any future nonsense). Don't be a smart ass.
That said, the answer to this question is highly dependant upon the actual situation in which the predicament occurs. If its something petty, like me and a friend are out camping and we only have 1 sandwich for lunch between the two of us, I'd probably rather have it "stolen" from me. If its a life-or-death thing, like needing a kidney, I'd probably rather steal it and live than have it stolen from me and die.

Speaking from a strictly legal sense, I'd prefer something to be stolen from me, as then I wouldn't have to be concerned about being a criminal. But I don't think that's the purpose of this poll.
I view it based on control. I have more control in the situation where I am stealing: I can choose who to steal from and what to steal. On the other hand, I can't choose who steals from me, for what reasons, or what they take away.
So yeah, I'd probably prefer to steal.

I'd rather be stolen from, save it being my house or something. Most of the things I own can be replaced for a price. Now having a clean conscience is something that cannot be bought. Depending on what I am stealing, I'd probably never be able to live it down. Being stolen from is something I can get over/deal with or just forget.
Holy shit our security's atrocious.
If this is truly an IRL issue, if you posted some details we'd probably be able to help more.
If, for example, your roommate is stealing from you and you want to steal your items back, I would buy a lockbox for your valuables and cut your losses.
